WWE Power Rankings Top 10 Superstars This Week: #410 - Big Returns Follow An Eventful SummerSlam | Smark Out Moment

Welcome to another edition of POWER RANKINGS from Smark Out Moment! Each week, we will break down the current roster and examine who has gone up the WWE hierarchy and who has unfortunately taken a step down the ladder. Factoring in things such as wins and losses, suspensions, injuries, making a name for oneself, being humiliated, and more, who is at the top of the food chain and who needs to make up some ground next week?

Here is the key code for the rankings shorthand when referencing their position in relation to the previous week:

NR = Not included in last week's rankings at all

+ Green = the number of moves up in the rankings compared to last week

- Red = the number of moves down in the rankings compared to last week

Honorable Mentions = five superstars who just barely missed the cut

Power Ranking WWE wrestlers list roster

10. Shayna Baszler [NR]

Capitalizing on a tired Raquel Rodriguez in SmackDown's Gauntlet Match (and a new creative regime that will push her properly), Shayna Baszler earned the right to challenge Liv Morgan for the SmackDown Women's Championship at Clash at the Castle.

9. Ciampa [NR]

While he couldn't help The Miz to a victory over Logan Paul at SummerSlam, Raw saw Ciampa finally be thrusted into the spotlight. In one night he defeated Chad Gable and Dolph Ziggler in a Triple Threat, then AJ Styles one-on-one to become the next contender for Bobby Lashley's United States Championship.

8. Diamond Mine [NR]

Thanks to some timely interference by a returning Santos Escobar, Diamond Mine retained their NXT Tag Team Championships over Tony D'Angelo & Channing 'Stacks' Lorenzo.

7. Zoey Stark [-6]

No match for Zoey Stark this week, but she did send a message to Mandy Rose ahead of their NXT Women's Championship bout at Heatwave.

6. AJ Styles [-1]

After helping Logan Paul beat The Miz at SummerSlam, AJ Styles had a mixed episode of Raw. He was able to defeat The Miz and Mustafa Ali in a Triple Threat, but fell later in the night to Ciampa in a match to determine Bobby Lashley's next US Championship challenger.

5. Katana Chance & Kayden Carter [NR]

Following months of attempts, Katana Chance & Kayden Carter finally have gold around their waists, winning a Fatal Four-Way Elimination match over Toxic Attraction, Ivy Nile & Tatum Paxley and Valentina Feroz & Yulisa Leon to win the vacant NXT Women's Tag Team Championships. Hopefully their reign will last a little longer than their predecessors…

4. The Bloodline [+4]

An incredibly successful week for The Bloodline even by their standards. The Usos retained their Unified Tag Team Championships twice in three days over The Street Profits and The Mysterios, while Roman Reigns conquered Brock Lesnar in a Last Man Standing Match to remain WWE Undisputed Universal Champion.

3. Bianca Belair [+1]

Bianca Belair closed the book on her year-long rivalry with Becky Lynch at SummerSlam, beating her to keep hold of the Raw Women's Championship. With Lynch now out of the picture, Belair now has a raft of new challengers on the horizon, namely Bayley, Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky.

2. Bobby Lashley [+1]

United States Champion Bobby Lashley comfortably dispatched of Theory once again at SummerSlam with the belt at stake, and now awaits the challenge of Ciampa.

1. Liv Morgan [+1]

It feels a little weird to have Liv Morgan on top of this week's Power Rankings when she evidently tapped out to Ronda Rousey at SummerSlam. Still, some inept refereeing meant Morgan 'won' the match and is still your SmackDown Women's Champion.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Logan Paul - A very successful singles debut for Logan Paul at SummerSlam, as he impressed many in his victory over The Miz.

The Mysterios - Edge's return helped The Mysterios get another win over The Judgment Day at SummerSlam, but they were unable to follow this with a victory over The Usos on Raw.

Pat McAfee - In another case of celebrity > wrestler, Pat McAfee beat Happy Corbin at SummerSlam.

Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams - Carmelo Hayes issued an open challenge for his North Amercian Championship this week, and beat the recipient Nathan Frazer to keep hold of his gold.

Shinsuke Nakamura - After once again beating Ludwig Kaiser on SmackDown, Shinsuke Nakamura will finally get his opportunity at Gunther and the Intercontinental Championship.

The Power Rankings Table (since WrestleMania 38)

  1. The Bloodline - 15 weeks (3 weeks at #1)
  2. Bianca Belair - 13 weeks (4 weeks at #1)
  3. Toxic Attraction - 12 weeks
  4. Cody Rhodes - 11 weeks (3 weeks at #1)
  5. Roxanne Perez - 9 weeks (2 weeks at #1)
  6. Bron Breakker - 9 weeks
